Rob's Return

Recommended Posts

FORMER Magpies ace Rob Lee will be back at St. James' Park on Saturday as the Half Time Hero for the opening game of the season against Wigan Athletic.


Rob spent a decade on Tyneside after moving from Charlton Athletic in 1992, and was described by Kevin Keegan as "pound for pound my best ever signing".


The classy midfielder made a total of 369 appearances for the club, netting 56 goals, and picked up 21 caps for England.


Rob, who turned 40 in February, was a regular for Wycombe Wanderers last season and also turned out in the black and white shirt when he made a guest apperance in Alan Shearer's Testimonial game.


Lee was a popular figure on Tyneside, and is certain to get an impressive reception when he emerges from the tunnel on Saturday.
